Warning – this post is a bit paper cut nerdy 🙂
During the corona lockdown, I – like many other people – had a lot more free time. I spent some of the time developing how to cut my paper cuts.
Normally, I start by taking a piece of paper of approx. 10 × 11 cm. I fold it on lengthwise, after which I cut a figure, which then becomes symmetrical and seen “from the front”. This is the universe I call De Klippede (those who has been cut free from the paper)
To find a new term, I changed the above-fixed framework. I did this by tearing a large piece of paper into smaller completely random pieces that were not square. In addition, I failed to fold the paper so that the paper cut did not become symmetrical. Finally, I changed the perspective from “from the front” to see the figure from the “side”.
I think it might sound unimportant, but these little changes caused some very different cuts to emerge.
I have photographed the new paper cut on their way around the world. It seems that at times they are on a hopeless journey – at times they are filled with joy and happiness.
